The poppy seeds have excelled even my wildest dreams, and have flourished in dry soil, wind and rain. One single mauve one stands out for its beautiful shaded colour
The trees have waited for some time, growing taller, and today was their day for a selected few to be cut down. Baz and his right hand man William arrived, and quickly set themselves up with safety gear, ropes, wire strainer and more.
There was a long thick rope, attached to a wire strainer, with William at the other end. This pine tree is almost ready to fall, and the noise is almost frightening when it hits the ground.
There are now 2 huge piles of lovely mulch, the pine needles, some bark and some thin branches, it will all smother those weeds so well.
The day continued with showers, some wind, and the occasional heavy squall.
Firewood, winter comfort, I can see those days arriving before we have really experienced summertime.
Quotation of the day, an African Proverb
“ Chop your own firewood and it will warm you twice”
